You are invited to join us Monday, November 2 in the church at 7pm for a Eucharist celebrating All Souls Day.
Customs and traditions associated with the day vary from culture to culture. For Anglicans, All Souls Day is one day after All Saints Day and is a day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have left for the heavenly abode. On All Souls Day friends and relatives of departed souls often pray, light candles, and offer a requiem Eucharist. The Feast reminds us of our obligations to live lives on the holy path and that there is hope for eternal life for the souls of the departed.
A Lithuanian All Souls Day Prayer
Dear souls of the dead, you are still remembered by my family; You are most worthy of our perpetual remembrance, especially you, my grandparents, my parents, and also our relatives, children, and everyone whom death took away from our home. I invite you to this feast. We pray that this feast be agreeable to you, just like the memory of you is to us. Amen.
